Nothing Cold about Internet Connectivity In Iceland
Reykjavik, Iceland may soon become the first city in which every home is connected to the Internet with fiber optic cable. While many in the world still have analog dial-up connections or no connections, Reykjavik is about to take a quantum leap. According to Gudjon Mar Gudjonsson, a consultant in the broadband industry who lives there, the icy capital city of Iceland has an unsurpassed fiber infrastructure. Apparently, the city’s utility company and the formerly state owned telecom operator are competing to build what may be the world’s first city with "Fiber-To-The-Home " for every one of it’s households. The full story will be presented at a conference — Digital Reykjavik — sometime before yearend. Gudjon saysthis time of the year is a wonderful time to visit our Iceland.
